The Perfect Tool for Travel to Venice!
Keys to the City: Venice Guidebook and Companion Travel Spinner
Why follow the masses to the same ten or so popular (but expected and crowded) tourist sites in Venice (the same places everyone visits) when you can explore a veritable treasure chest of 101 hidden gems that this fairytale kingdom built on water possesses. Experience a much more fun and surprising visit to Venice using the Keys to the City Guidebook and Spinner Board to unlock the secrets of the ancient island city of labyrinths.
How the Guidebook and Spinner Board works:
Spin the Spinner. It'll land on a location with a number.
Turn the board over to its back side and find your number. Instantly see where the site is located in the city.
Open the guidebook that matches to that corresponding page number and read all about your hidden gem of a destination.
Fold the board up and put it and the guidebook back in your purse or pack and spin away during your day to discover dozens more hidden gems.
Let the Spinner Board be your itinerary builder to the hidden heart and secret past of Venice! See more of the ancient city that insiders know…interesting, imaginative and away from the crowds. Unique to the travel industry, there’s nothing else quite like it!
